I am so sick of eating rice nearly every day.
I love what my parents would call "white" food and I love eating out at "white" restaurants. The idea of a cream based soup is completely foreign to Asian restaurants much to my dismay and I'm too lazy to eat around bone or pick away fat and skin. So when even I refuse to eat at a "white" restaurant anymore, you know there are some serious issues with the establishment.
Such an example would be the restaurant some friends and I went to for lunch over the weekend. It's a fairly well known diner and supposedly one of the best nearby campus. I ate there once and wasn't impressed but I was willing to give it a second chance. Maybe they had an off day or something.
Still the least impressive club sandwich I've ever had though.
It being cold and windy I felt like a bowl of soup. They had two specials that day. Some boring chicken, lentil and bacon soup AND (I kid you not), a pumpkin pie soup with whipped cream.
Pumpkin pie soup with whipped cream.
Are you kidding me.
What maniac would make this soup? What kind of an idiot would order this?
Obviously, I did. Why? Because why not, that's why.
Yes Damian, yes you are.
Anyways, eventually my soup and salad arrive and I have to say that I'm still apprehensive. The whipped cream was nice, I mean how can you screw up whipped cream?
And then I get to the soup.
Have you ever had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks? Well, imagine it to be thicker, with inconsistent salty and/or very cinnamon heavy sections and that was pretty much what my soup tasted like. I don't think I've ever had a soup that unappetizing.
Oh, and my tabbouleh salad wasn't that great either, I just ate all the tomatoes and left the rest.
I felt like Byran for the rest of the day for some reason too.
I asked around and apparently the restaurant used to be really good but that was before the original owner sold the place. But that's not my problem, I'm avoiding the place from now on at all costs. Pumpkin pie soup... seriously...
